It sometimes happens that you are asked to produce something you have actually wanted to do for some time. A customer called and asked if we could build a log shack in his field, one that would be large enough to sit and write inside. I loved the idea from the start. Oddly enough, we’ve recently received quite a few questions about the log shack we produced years ago.

That shack has been added to the collection of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. And now we’ve constructed one as a stack of logs standing in a pasture at the edge of the woods.

Not long after that, we sold a version of the shack I had wanted to design for quite a while, this time in a different size and made of birch. As the shack began to take shape, so did the enthusiasm of all those involved in its construction or who saw it. The windows and shutters are what really make the difference. The sliding windows are fitted into specially designed frames, although “specially designed” is somewhat of an exaggeration for the simple plastic and steel profiles.

Kim Avery at the RE/MAX of Western Canada Conference 2013RE/MAX has always been a proud supporter of the Children's Miracle Network and recently affiliates have given back by raising over $72,000 during the “Miracle Makers Luncheon” in support of Children’s Miracle Network and its member hospitals. The event was held during the RE/MAX of Western Canada 30th Annual Conference held here in Calgary, AB last week.

RE/MAX affiliates have donated over $4 million for the Children’s Miracle Network 14 member hospitals across Canada in 2013, with Western Canadian affiliates contributing $1.7 million of this total. RE/MAX has been a proud partner of the network and its member hospitals since 1992 and is one of the Children's Miracle Network's largest partners. RE/MAX agents across Canada have dedicated much of their time and resources to volunteering and giving back in their local communities.

Over the years, RE/MAX associates have raised over $44 Million across Canada! The Miracle Home Program®, where agents donate a percentage of their yearly sales, has generated a huge part of this total. Other fundraising events that RE/MAX holds include golf tournaments, galas, hockey tournaments, live and silent auctions, head shaves and bowl-a-thons.

I attended the convention and am so grateful to have the chance to meet so many of our associates from all over Western Canada! It's a great network of Realtors and I am very proud to be a part of the TOP RE/MAX office (RE/MAX Real Estate (Central) in transactions in both Alberta and Western Canada.

Congratulations to everyone who has chosen to be a member of the RE/MAX team!!!
